Churches Learning Change

Navigating Change in Your Context

We are living in a world that has never existed before.

The world has changed around us.

Our churches have changed.

The systems, structures, programs, and processes that got us here will not get us to where God is calling us to be.

So what do we do now?

Big Picture: What is it?

"Churches Learning Change" is a corporate transformation journey with similar goals to Faithwalking.  Churches Learning Change uses information that is most likely not new to those who have gone to seminary.


What is new is that it is an intentional journey to put that information into practice with a team from a particular setting, in conjunction with other teams from across the region.  Information does not transform; we believe information, practice and reflection are all a part of living into the ongoing transformation God has for us! 


Come be a part of the journey.
